May I praise your name,
Serving in all I do;
Then I will see your face, at last,
For I belong to you.
May I face each day
Bearing my cross anew;
Then I will share your joy, at last,
For I am part of you.
May I hear your voice
Teaching me all that’s true;
Then we will reunite, at last,
For I am one with you.
1. You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him (Luke 4:8; NLT).
Now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face (1 Corinthians 13:12; NRSV).
You and I both belong to God (Job 33:6; NLT).
2. If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me (Luke 9:23; NLT).
Share your master’s joy (Matthew 25:21; CSB).
Don’t you know that your bodies are a part of Christ’s body? (1 Corinthians 6:15; CSB).
3. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth (John 14:17; NLT).
Then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NLT).
I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one (John 17:21; NLT).
The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).

Each day I am reliant on Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Togeher they accept my meagre humanity and enrich it with heavenly blessings I cannot attain by any other means. All glory to the Almighty!
Thank you sister Ruth for this inspiring start to my day, may God bless you today.
What a lovely comment, Alan, though I can take no credit. I’m thinking of you. Just about to take John for his Covid vaccination (he is older than me). The first of the prayers dedicated to you will be posted here tomorrow, God willing XXXXX
